Thats ok, they are doing fine without you. Shop is still there and everything... Well all seemed well yesterday..

Weather was perfect in the morning, thunder storms hit over in Robinsville by 3pm.. The dragon was empty after the rain, pavement dried out and all was well in the universe. I didn't get a speeding ticket this time..

I wish I was in Alaska too! I need more money... next year... I haven't been out west in two years, I'm getting withdrawl...

Thanks guys! Cheri & Robin have been working hard on organizing all the new merchandise that came in as I was going on this trip. Not sure where they found room for 40 pairs of boots and the new helmet rack.

We head to Prudoe Bay in the morning. Supposed to have the next 5 days insunshine! We can only hope.

Great place to shop

I finally got to see the shop this weekend and met Mike. What a great place! Excellent gear at reasonable prices. The only problem was that I did not have enough room on my bike to buy everything I wanted.

Mike is so friendly and helpful. He offered to highlight dual sport routes for me if I brought him a map. He even gave me some ideas for places to take my 5 year old when staying in the area.

Super great guy and really nice store. I hope to get back soon.

Visited a few weeks ago while riding the Cherry Cola Skyway.

Great shop, nice people. I could not pull the trigger on a mesh jacket that weekend, but now that it is 100 degress...

Called today to order my jacket. Friendy, efficient, helpful, and a great price. This transaction was even faster and easier than most websites!

Love to support a shop and owner like this. Best wishes for success.

And MotoMo.

Nice talking to you and Tom this week. Had trouble finding #82, I went too far and found a #82 marker but the gates were closed on both sides. On the way out I ran into (not literally) a guy walking on Joe Brown and he told me where the trailhead was. Went back and ran it, but passed on #81 since the sun was setting. Got back to Rville in the dark - didn't meet 1 car or bike going across the Skyway :) I'll be back in September and finish up the routes Tom suggested. Take care!
